Is Christianity All Health, Wealth, and Prosperity?

A very popular doctrine taught by religious leaders today is that when you become a Christian your physical life will immediately improve. Typically, these teachers will also tell that you’ll be even more blessed if you send them a hefty check! Is this what the Bible teaches?

We know that the apostles were beaten and persecuted around every corner (cf. 2 Cor. 11:23-33)

We know that Jesus Himself was hated by the religious leaders, His physical relatives, and was even rejected by His closest disciples in His hours of physical agony.

The Bible certainly DOES NOT teach that Christianity eases all of our physical burdens. A relationship with God is meant for one thing; eternal, spiritual healing.

So why does God allow His Christians to suffer? Find out at http://alivewithchrist.com/whydochristianssuffer/
